Results of a calculation of an optimized truncated scarfed nozzle were compared. The truncated scarfed nozzle was designed for an exit Mach number of 6.0, i.e., the Mach number at the last nozzle characteristic is 6.0, with an external flow Mach number of 5.0. The nozzle was designed by the Rao method for optimum thrust nozzles modified for 2-D flow and truncated scarfed nozzle applications. This design was analyzed using a shock-fitting method for 2-D supersonic flows. Excellent agreement was achieved between the design and analysis. Truncation of the lower nozzle wall (cowl) revealed that there is an optimum length for truncating the cowl without degrading the nozzle performance. Truncation of the nozzle cowl past this optimal length should be analyzed in trade-off studies for thrust loss versus gross vehicle weight. Plots of the oblique shock wave equations were also identified which will allow computation of slip line angle, dynamic pressure coefficient, or ambient Mach number for various specific heat ratios.
